Birthday Trip 2022
Our stay was amazing! We just underestimated how far the resort was from town. The food at the resort was amazing and the people were very nice. I am definitely happy with my stay. Free birthday shots at the tiki bar!

Loved our stay!
Everyone at the Sapphire Resort was wonderful. Emma and Nicki were both awesome and always had a smile on their faces and we really enjoyed visiting with them. We met Eron on his second night of starting the job and he was also very nice and was trying very hard to do a good job - which he did! All of the food we had was great and really enjoyed the daily happy hour! I had seen people mention the sea grass on reviews before we went but it did not stop us from having a great time. They had people working continuously removing it from the beach and we were still able to get in the water and swim and snorkle. We also enjoyed the kayaks and loved being able to kayak out to the reef and do some snorkeling. To us this place was exactly what we wanted and needed. If you are looking for some place quiet and out of the way to unwind with great staff I would totally recommend it. Thank you Sapphire staff for a great stay!

8/10 Very good

Staff were fantastic and condo was very nice. Food was good. Be prepared for biting bugs and be sure to come prepared as town is a long way away. But very nice place if you want a quiet and relaxing vacation!

8/10 Very good

The resort it’s self is beautiful we had the beach front and it was everything and more. The staff was so friendly and catered to our every need. I would definitely recommend it and I will go back. Just know that it is far away from the San Pedro city and you have to rent a golf cart to get around. The golf cart rode to the city center is about 45 minutes. The roads are unpaved to its a very bumpy ride. But even with all that I would do it all over again.

Laidback beach resort
The sapphire beach resort is a laid back vacation spot. It’s not a partying location, but great for couples or families. Unit 18 was charming, clean and everything we expected and needed. The staff was very helpful. The beach had sargasso seaweed, which made it unpleasant to swim in, but the kayaks and paddle boards . The on-site Gem restaurant was very good and there are other beaches and restaurants within a 10-30 minute golf cart ride. It is approximately 45 minutes to San Pedro, so if’s that's were you want to be most times, sapphire may not be for you.

6/10 Good

Rooms and food was good. Property is way too far from all the entertainment 50 mins from water taxi. Roads are terrible to locations too much seaweed in the water. And place was deserted not too many guest at locations. Pools are too small you could only sit in them no room for swimming back and forth. I wouldn't stay here again

10/10 Exceptional

Sapphire Resort is a beautiful property to stay at while in Belize. Although there is still lots of constructions taking place Im the resort grounds, much of the property is kept in great order with garden beds, several pools and a gorgeous ocean/beach view. The best part that I enjoyed the most while staying at Sapphire was the staff. They were extremely transparent with everything and were three steps ahead of the game when it came to scheduling room cleanings (COVID-19) as well as arranging for transports, assisting with activities, and even renting out a golf cart with gas that’s included. I’ve had absolutely no complaints about this location at all but one should truly do research before booking as it is extremely far north of the actual town which can make for very long trips to/from. The roads leading up to the resort are not paved; they are dirt roads with a massive amount of large potholes which makes your cart ride very bumpy and long as you have to continuously slow down and stop. If you want to come to Belize and get away while on the busy island of San Pedro, this is the place for you. It’s quiet and reserved with a very nice tiki bar and restaurant. It’s very close (15 min drive) to the Secret Beach which is a local gem. Enjoy your stay. You will not be disappointed.
